YouTube, an American online video-sharing and social media platform will be introducing handles for members of its community by 14 November 2022.
For a long time, most popular social media platforms like Twitter, Instagram and TikTok have allowed users to create unique handles to identify themselves differently. And now YouTube has finally decided to jump on the trend by allowing its community of users to create unique handles to replace its custom URL.
The new handle feature is YouTube’s way of allowing its users to find and connect with its community of users. Handles will be unique to each creator, unlike channel names, making it easier for creators to establish a distinct presence on YouTube.
According to YouTube, this will make it easier to mention other users in comments, community posts, and descriptions. Giving shout-outs to co-creators will be made easy with the handles.
The new YouTube handles will first be available to creators with personalized URL in the coming weeks before it becomes automatically available to all YouTubers in November, each creator will receive personal emails and notification in the YouTube studio when the feature is available to be used.
For every creator with a personalized URL for their channel, there is a reserved handle, however, if a creator wants a different handle, the creator can decide to change it.
YouTube is now cancelling the “100 subscribers before you get a personalized URL” requirement. Regardless of having a personalized URL or not, it is possible to choose a unique handle for your channel.
Your new handle will become part of your channel URL; the personalized URL will become your handle, i.e. if your handle is @InvestorsKing, your channel URL will be https://youtube.com/@InvestorsKing, which can be used to direct people to your channel when they are not on YouTube, just like your Twitter, Instagram and TikTok handles.
The new YouTube handle allows you to be identified differently from every other creators on YouTube, all your social accounts can have a uniform handle, and other community members can tag you in video and lets others find you on YouTube easily.

WhatsApp Introduces Dual Account Feature, Enabling Users to Sign Into Two Accounts
WhatsApp has introduced a groundbreaking innovation that promises to redefine the user experience.
This new feature allows individuals to simultaneously manage two WhatsApp accounts on a single device, eliminating the need for dual phones.
The eagerly anticipated announcement was made by Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s CEO, who assured Android users that this feature will soon grace their screens.
Gone are the days of juggling multiple WhatsApp accounts, a task that often required carrying two separate devices. While tech giants like Xiaomi and Oppo had previously introduced app cloning features for multiple WhatsApp instances, WhatsApp’s integrated approach sets a new standard for seamlessness.
This innovation is poised to be a game-changer for users who navigate both personal and professional realms on this ubiquitous messaging platform.
Cumbersome login-and-logout routines and the perpetual concern of messaging from the wrong account will soon be a thing of the past, replaced by a newfound ease of multitasking.
Activating this feature is a straightforward process. Users need only navigate to the ‘Settings’ menu and select ‘Add Account.’ During setup, a second phone with a SIM card or a device supporting eSIM technology is required to unlock the full potential of multi-SIM functionality.
WhatsApp ensures that each account can have its own customized notification and privacy settings, preserving data integrity and personalization.
In addition to the dual account feature, WhatsApp recently introduced passkey support for Android, enhancing security by providing an alternative to SMS-based two-factor authentication.
This latest advancement underscores WhatsApp’s dedication to user convenience, connectivity, and digital identity security, setting the stage for a more organized and efficient way of communication.
